JUDGES

We have a pool of about 10 judges that we draw from each year. Each year, 5 wonderful people volunteer a day to come to Canberra and judge over 200 entries! Electronic entries are judged separately from the publications and we have a different group of judges we call upon. We have a strict recusal process to avoid any conflict of interest. If you have any questions about the conflict of interest process, please contact us.
